Divide Your Topics

This is very useful when you there's so much to learn. First:

  1. Make a list of what you're going to study
  2. Identify easy topics/short topics
  3. Try to finish the easier ones or shorter ones
  4. Move on to the bigger/harder topics
  5. If possible, divide the bigger topic into 2 parts and learn it based on your capability (videos, blogs, explaining to someone else, etc.)
  6. Take a break. This is important! Refresh your brain. Go read a book or watch an episode.
  7. Get back to studying. Try finishing 80% of the list you've written in step 1.
  8. Reward yourself if you finish the 20% as well! Congrats!

Link What You Learn With Previous Knowledge

Link What You Learn With Previous Knowledge

This is a favorite retaining method by Elon Musk. When you learn something new, it's completely normal to forget it after some time. One way you can remember this is connecting what you've learned with your previous knowledge. Meaning, you can try and think about how this new knowledge can be applied in your real-life or incidents that have happened in the past.

How Teaching Others Helps Retain

How Teaching Others Helps Retain

Studies have shown that if you cannot explain something to a person, it means you have not understood the topic yourself. Try and teach your friends what you've learned. This can help you simplify your words and you can see the areas that you've forgotten. If you don't have a friend, you can explain it to your pillow.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
